I don't know who to join.

Sad

The IFP has brownies and cupcakes! Cheesy

Somehow I wouldn't trust your brownies...

Maybe you'd prefer the SDU (NSTC)'s whiskey and hard candy. The creature comforts of the Working Man.

Probably. When it comes to alcohol I only drink the hard stuff because it's the only stuff that tastes halfway decent and isn't reserved for females.

To JCL...

I think you would probably be better off in the Communitarian Party than the Individual Freedom Party since the CPA the two are farther apart on social issues than they are on fiscal issues. Certainly neither is everything you are looking for in a party (heck, I don't agree with some of the stuff Simfan said in this thread) but that's part of being in a party. We aren't as far to the left fiscally as our name might suggest either. Look at our membership, we have many more fiscal conservatives than liberals in our ranks.

I can only stomach highly diluted whiskey but the taste isn't bad. I actually prefer sweet dessert wines, which are reserved for women or very elderly men, but then I'm at heart at least one of those things anyway, possibly both, so yeah...

My favorite type of hard candy is candied ginger. That stuff's amazing, but it's definitely an acquired taste.

However, if you join the IFP, you could start a Social Conservative-minded caucus, bringing diversity to the party.

I know I have like minded folks socially (Many of the Pro-Life Caucus is here) in the party but I want to help unite the conservative factions to have a shot of bringing a small government conservative agenda to help Atlasia. The left is doing so and it would hurt us if we didn't. A way to do so would be almost as right/libertarian on economics.

What are the parties views on Right to Work (aka open shop factories vs closed shop union factory regions) IRL Indiana will become Right to Work within the next few weeks.

We firmly oppose Right to Scab in any and all incarnations. Unionization is the cornerstone of an equitable industrialized society.

Why do you oppose gay adoption. Sure, some of us might prefer that gay couples not exist, but they do. I'd rather have a child growing up in a family, as non-traditional as it might be (short of crime, etc.) than in a government orphanage. Those kids that are stuck there will hardly be ready for the world when they leave at the age of eighteen, and it's better in my opinion to have them growing up in a household.

Amen...rather in a gay household then aborted

We firmly oppose Right to Scab Workin any and all incarnations. Unionization is the cornerstone of an equitable industrialized society.

While I support the right to organize for the purpose of collective bargaining and guarantee of workplace safety I also equally hold to the belief that being forced to join a union as a requirement of employment in any industry is wrong. There are many "Regan/JFK Democrats" IRL who
While think it wise to have unions think it dangerous to allow union dues to go to causes and political canidates who oppose their personal values. I am from one of the union towns in the Midwest that have many conservatives who work in the auto factories like Delphi, Chrysler/Fiat and Ford who think the unions are so historically in bed with the left that the conflict with many of their personal conservative values.

To Duke, JCL, and others undecided: Join the Pigs Wear Boots Confederation. You'll have a chance to have a direct impact on the game, and we will focus heavily on game reform so this game can be more enjoyable. Once that's solved, we'll start tackling other important issues.

We don't have a specific platform yet on the issues - that's up for the entire body as a whole. But we welcome those of all colors and stripes.

The solution to that is limits on political contributions, not taking a wrecking ball to the working class.

Allowing non union labor promotes competition and does not take a wreaking ball to the working class.

Non-Right to Work doesn't 'disallow' non-union labor by any means.

Regardless, I don't think you and the SDU (NSTC) will or would be a good fit in either direction, for several reasons.

Which new party should I join? I've only known 1 party my whole life in Atlasia, and needless to say, I feel naked without my RPP. I need a new home or I need to leave Sad

You would fit in well with the Moderate Party, I'd say - center right economically, liberal on social issues.

Another party for you to have a look at could be the United Imperialist Front - the one and only Southern Party.
